Tuesday 31st March 2020 

Hello Buzzards,

Hope you are all well and had a good day yesterday.  Shame the sun is not shining as brightly and it has become chillier- but at least it is still dry!

Apologies for those who experienced issues opening resources at the bottom of the webpage- there was a technical glitch and they all seemed to have got muddled up.  I have reattached everything again- so hopefully they will be okay now.  Apologies again.  

Parents, thank you for all the hard work you are doing with the children at home and all the learning you are delivering for them- I know this can't be easy.  Apologies if today has caused some confusion.  There is no expectation for you to bring the work to school to be marked- the children can bring in what they have done to show me when we get back to school. If at any point, you don't understand a task or you can't access a resource, please don't worry- just do what you can- some learning is better than not doing anything at all. But it fills be with much pride and appreciation, knowing that a lot of you are trying your best to deliver the lessons I have planned for them. 

The unit of work planned is from Literacy Shed, but unfortunately I have just realised that we have the newer version books- so pages don't quite tally up.  I have tried to find an online version to help- but with no success.   I have ordered an old version- so hopefully it will come soon to help us. I will try my level best to change page numbers accordingly- but you may need to read on a couple of/few pages further than stated for the VIPERS booklet.  

Tasks for today Tuesday - 31/03/2020:

Hope you have had a good weekend.  I have included all your tasks for this week below, as I thought it may be easier for some of you to plan your week ahead- I know how some of you like to be organised!  But don't worry for those who like to be told daily - I will do that too. Don’t forget to include some physical and artistic activities into your week too. 

I know some of you might be finding this all a bit too much to do out of a classroom setting - please just do what you can and try your best!  If you are finding anything a struggle - and your parents are not able to help you - try not to worry- do what you can and try your hardest!

English for the Week

Some of the page references may be slightly out due to different versions of the book- I have tried to tally them up the best I can.  Please just do what you can!  We have done some work on Beowulf in class- so think back to what we already know about the legend.  Apologies for any confusion! 

ALL RESOURCES FOR THIS WEEK ARE ATTACHED BELOW.  Children don't have to do them on printed pages- they can just use them to given them examples as how to lay it out on their page!

Lesson plans 

Monday 30th March 2020

LO: To identify how meaning is enhanced through the author’s choice of words and phrases.

You will begin to explore the words and phrases Michael Morpurgo uses to create mood and character. You will explore the character of Grendel through this.

Read page 19 where we are introduced to Grendel. Compare pages 17-18 with the change in mood on page 19. How does Michael Morpurgo do this? (pick out words and phrases that justify your reasons)

Draw an image of Grendel into Resource 1a  and find evidence on page 19 about Grendel to add around this image.  What language features does Morpurgo use?  

Success Criteria: 

  • I can identify the different ways an author uses words/phrases to describe a character

Success Criteria:

  • I can use Words and Phrases to describe Beowulf’s qualities and skills

Hello Year 5,

I hope you enjoyed creating maps and giving directions.

Today, you are going to revise the weather.

Firstly, can you write the English or draw a weather symbol for these French weather phrases.  If you want to make the activity a little easier, use the worksheet attached (if you can’t print, you can still draw it on a piece of paper)

Il y a du soleil

 

Il y a des orages

 

Il fait froid

 

Il fait chaud

Music for the Week

Year 5

31st March           Music Lesson

Hi everyone! Hope you are all well. This will be the last of the lessons on Viking Saga Songs.

I would like you to try to remember the different Viking realms that we talked about:

Jotunheim -  land of giants, frost and ice.

Midgard – home for humans. Earth!

Asgard – home of the gods. A golden citadel.

Helheim – Land of evil!

Bifrost – the rainbow bridge connecting Asgard and Midgard

Yggdrasil – the tree that connects all of the realms.

Do you remember that you planned a piece of music that would reflect one of those realms? You discussed what all of the different realms would have been like and the different sounds that could have shown that.

I would like you to listen to the “listening music” at the bottom of the web page I’ve put below. The piece is an extract from the 3rd movement of Symphony No 5 by Jean Sibelius. Ignore the questions next to it! Please listen to it, it’s a really lovely piece and quite short. It was said to have been inspired by swans taking off.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/music-ks2-viking-saga-songs-7-birds-of-the-north/zmb3y9q

Now think – which of the Viking realms could it represent and why? Try to think about the instruments that are being used, the tempo, dynamics and timbre (the quality of the sound – is it dull? Sharp? Wooden? Metallic?)

Try to explain to someone at home which Viking realm you think it would suit and why. You don’t have to write anything down this time.

I've added some ideas and videos to the Music page on the website, including the song "Spring Chicken" which some of you had requested. It's under Learning, the Curriculum, then Music. Enjoy singing! I'll try to add some more regularly. 

Have fun!

Art for the week

Taking Wax Rubbings

A rubbing is something that records different textures and marks on paper.  It’s really easy!  You need paper and a crayon without any paper on it.

  1. Find a tree or any rough surface outside.
  2. Put your piece of paper on the surface.
  3. Use the side of the crayon to rub over the paper, backwards and forwards
  4. You should see the pattern of the surface appear on your paper

Go outside and find 6 different surfaces.  You may want to take each rubbing with a different colour.

 

Now you’ve got the hang of it, you might want to collect six leaves from outside. Leaves that have a rough texture are best.

  1. Stick your leaves on a piece of paper – think carefully about how you arrange them.  Stick to smoothest side downwards
  2. Now put another piece of paper over the top and take your rubbing
  3. Use different colours to make it interesting

 

If you are feeling really creative, make a pattern with string on a piece of paper.  Stick it down using glue or blue tac and take a rubbing of this.

 

Wednesday 25th March 2020- please read information below if only logged in today.

Hi Buzzards, 

Hope you are all well.  Well done to those who are working very hard on their TT Rockstars, Mathletics and Spellingframe- keep up the great work!!  Sending you all a virtual credit and raffle ticket.

 

There are still a few of you who have hardly attempted any of the tasks set.  Please can I remind you to try and keep your learning going.  Most of the tasks set you should be able to do without an adult- so please try and have a good go as this will keep you focussed for the next few weeks.  If you are in contact with each other- please encourage each other to keep going- to keep learning!

''Follow that Rainbow''

I am sure that you have heard about the rainbows that people are putting in their windows during this challenging time.  They are a sign to show others that you are thinking of them and they spread a little bit of joy and hope! You can also try to find them to give your daily walk/exercise a purpose - although please respect the social distancing advice if you are going outdoors (ensure you are with an adult please). 

Lets see how creative you can be- what rainbow can you create to display in your window?  Some ideas below.

Please don't forget that if you want something more to do- you can continue to work on your websites on Google classroom. If you don't have access to the APP we have been using- then create a PPP about 'Why Is Our Blue Planet In Danger?' Notes are in your draft book- search for more facts if needed.  

 

Here are a couple of new websites for you to explore.
